Ati driver "Unable to resolve execstack" ubuntu
I have search for about an hour and I cant figure out how to fix this.
The proprietary drivers that came with my ubuntu 9.04 installation are not doing their job. My cpu is managing my graphics (compiz-fusion, and a 3d obj running in the background) and I alway have a core of my phenom processor close to 100. I have an ATI 4870 gpu with 2gb internal ram on the card. Also, recordmydesktop, electric sheep, and any other simple graphics all lag. 3d games on the other hand have no problem.
I decided I would try the driver I downloaded from AMD. I removed the proprietary driver, ran...
If anyone has any suggestions to make the proprietary driver work better I'm all for that to. Thanks in advanced for you help, I swear I'm cursed because I have problems like this almost every weekend (not kidding past 3 weeks I've had various problems)
I am not very sure this will help or not but you can try. I had rebooting problem and installation problem of ATI driver for ubuntu 9.04.
Basically this is what I did and I could install ATI driver:
sudo /usr/share/ati/fglrx-uninstall.sh # (if it exists)
sudo apt-get remove --purge fglrx*
sudo apt-get remove --purge xserver-xorg-video-ati xserver-xorg-video-radeon
sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-ati
sudo apt-get install --reinstall libgl1-mesa-glx libgl1-mesa-dri xserver-xorg-core
sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
Then I deleted /etc/X11/xorg.conf, then rebooted my computer to make sure everything was cleaned up.
Then I run this command in terminal:
sudo sh ./ati-driver-installer-10-1-x86.x86_64.run
Then after installed these drivers but BEFORE I rebooted my system I typed the following into the terminal.
sudo aticonfig --initial -f
sudo aticonfig --acpi-services=off
This anticonfig solved my reboot problem. I not sure this is command applicable to you or not.
I referred to this forum:http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1315199
Well it worked I guess... Thanks for your help bluewind, you gave me what I asked. Unfortunatly its worse now than before, now 2 of my four cores are always running at 100%, the fps dropped and all graphics jitter (if thats a word :P), and boot up takes twice as long. Serves me right for being nosy. So I think I'm going to remove all the things I installed, and go back to the proprietary driver. There isn't an opensource driver for the 4870 is there?? Because that would be optimal. Thanks again for the help bluewind.
Ok, so I got the proprietary setup again, is there anyway to improve how the gpu/cpu handles graphics objects? My cpu is working to hard for the gpu to be in control of my graphics. I know that the biggest thing stressing my system is this massive moon with excellent detail (3d object) I have rotating in my background (kinda corny sounding I know but it looks sweet). This computer is capable of playing Crysis on high with no problems, its hard to imagine that this moon, electric sheep, and recordmydesktop are really straining my gpu.
